New to beekeeping and am currently establishing 2 new hives. My setup will be completed shortly and I'll "bee" needing some bees. Would anyone be able to supply a couple of nuc colonies or perhaps have a connection to a supplier? I will pay of course, but I would like a supplier of quality, disease free bees, preferably from an environmentally responsible source.
I live in the Illinois valley but would be happy to drive to pick them up and save on some shipping stress.
